Twitter is great for crowd sourcing – when you’re following people in your industry and
people are following you, you’re aware of what they think about what you are doing and
what they are saying about it.
A Promotional Palace

Twitter is great for building influence on your business – the more content you produce
and market, the better you build your reputation as an expert in the industry.
Create Character in Your Brand

Twitter provides the platform for you to establish yourself as a trusted source of content.
Equity booster

Basically, it’s like having your own online focus group, 24/7.
Customer Service and Chit Chat
Branding and Free Advertising: With its over 600 million members worldwide, Facebook is a
    great way to generate brand awareness. Free advertising occurs when your fans will “like”
    your page and recommend them to their friends.

Customer Interaction: Facebook is a good medium to interact with your customers. You can
   communicate promotions, events and contests. You can ask for ideas from them on how you
   can improve your products or services.

Networking: You can search for people or businesses in the Facebook platform who are involved
   in your industry and become a fan of a page or profile. By being connected to them you
   increase your visibility to your target customers.

Drive web traffic and Lead generation: With the recent updates in the Facebook system,
    websites can now be linked to Facebook profiles and pages. You can review your fans profile
    and find future prospects to aid in lead qualifying process.

Reputation Management: Facebook, as an interactive media can be used for reputation
   management by answering back to those bad publicity and clarifying some misguided
   information.
Free advertising

Short term gains - gain immediate visitors.

Long terms gains - attracts visitors for years to come.

Causes exponential growth – reaches a large audience. Automate your marketing methods -
set it up once and forget about it.

Inexpensive to set-up – it primarily involves some investment of time. Viral marketing tools
are easy to develop i.e. you can create an e-book without knowing how to write.

Quickly build your reputation.

Easy to combine with other marketing methods – i.e. include as a bonus with other
products.

Increase targeted traffic to your web site.
Customers can almost always be reached and interrupted

Reduced targeting errors and improved data management

Improved time relevance: The always-on and always-aware nature of mobile devices
provides more timely communications than any other channel.

Location awareness: Knowing someone’s geographic location can be critical to engaging
in a relevant conversation with them.


Increased intimacy with the device and via the device: Sharing of mobile devices is not
unheard of, but is less common than sharing of personal computers.
